Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Saint Georges from Thibault Liger-Belair. Deep in color, it has a very perfumed, floral bouquet with black plum and blueberry fruit that is ripe and generous, whilst maintaining impressive delineation. The oak is present but nicely enmeshed here. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet, creamy texture opening, quite lavish and sumptuous in the mouth, more opulent than expect though it masks the terroir somewhat. This is attractive but it needs to develop its intellectual side in bottle.
